Question about 2005 Honda Civic
The squealing after starting is usually a loose belt on the alternator. The alternator has to do heavy charging after starting the car. If the belts really have been changed and properly tensioned then its hard to guess what might be wrong. As far as "heavy fumes" when the car is started ... burning gasoline makes water vapor and you can see it when the engine is cold. If its really dark as in black or in that range then it would seem the engine is running very rich when cold. Does the car burn a lot of oil?
